Haha, that profile picture should be marked as NSFW.

Self Portrait, Bro...!  :party:

Much appreciated as always.

1. Does the amount of pics I can post drop as I post them? 

I think I had 10mg available a few days ago, and now it seems I can post 8.5mgs..

 

2. My pics are often published in landscape format which is unpleasant on the eye if unplanned. How can I change this?

Hope you don't mind all the questions, but I learn quickly...!  ;)




#1549599 Easy Salsa

Posted by huntsman on 29 April 2018 - 10:31 AM

Made the salsa, but not at all impressed with my results... :tear:

 

Had no food processor, so blended the 'maters and the result was much too much liquid...

 

Heat was non-existant, though I'm sure that will change as the contents drop towards the hots and supers at the bottom. (I'm actually tempted to mix the jar now...)

 

Anyhow...here are a couple of pics:

Loved the Black Beans and the corn which are aesthetically very pleasing, though I did forget to rinse the beans..!  :P

No idea why my pics are sideways - apologies...

 

 

 

 




#1549268 Bhuter's 2018 Glog

Posted by huntsman on 28 April 2018 - 08:15 AM

Lovely looking plants there, Bhuter!

 

Always strange seeing plants at this growth-stage whilst my own season comes to a close, but I plan to plant again in July - indoors - so there's not long to wait.

I've been out of the hobby for a while now and you have some new and very interesting species names there!

Like your idea of not starting in very small pots - potting up can be a permanent chore, otherwise... :party:




#1549186 Signup for the 2018 mega seed train!

Posted by huntsman on 27 April 2018 - 04:05 PM

Nice short answer...

 

I guess I should have asked if this train includes countries other than US.

 

I am part of a regular tomato seed train, and it certainly does work.




#1549175 What's the hottest thing you're growing this year?

Posted by huntsman on 27 April 2018 - 03:34 PM

No-one seems to grow Dorset Nagas here?

Well, superhot seeds in South Africa are superhard to find, but a local nursery did have a young plant back in early Spring  (August for me) and I managed to keep it alive and finally harvested around 30 of the fruit which are way hotter than anything I'm used to! 

 

Let's hope the seeds are viable, and not an F1...!

#1548869 Picture Hosting services - do we still use them?

Gracias... :surprised:




#1548379 Picklese...You Have To Try This!!!

Posted by huntsman on 24 April 2018 - 12:29 PM

Like most other folk reading this thread, I really did have to give it a try, particularly when there was no cooking involved, and here it is - 

 

I did manage to get some cool pouring jars which will make life easier I reckon, and I went with cloves of garlic as well as cloves of...well cloves!

 

I cannot find fresh Scotch Bonnets in South Africa - might have to import seeds which will be fun! - so I used 2 x Dorset Nagas...we'll see after a few days.  :party:

Nope - I didn't use 'em all...  :shocked:

Oh, the small jar in the last pic is the 'leftovers' jar, ala rooze, with blended cabbage, carrots, cayenne peppers, lime juice, hot English mustard powder, mild senf (German mustard), red wine vinegar, mayo, salt and pepper. Tried some on hot toast and it's a winner!

 

Man, I'm glad to be back!! :dance:

Thanks Bro - 

 

Nice improvement. I guess the 'attach files' button will appear with each new post I create?

HA! Can't believe you guys are in the USA and Thailand and can search South African sites better than me!  ;)  :dance:  :dance:

You may want to put a couple meters and packs of strips in your amazon cart and do the following:

 

To place your Amazon order from South Africa, simply go to Amazon.com and add the desired items to your shopping cart, then go to checkout and enter your address. At this point you should see if any items in your cart don’t qualify. Once you proceed, Amazon adds in all your fees and import duties up front and delivers your package via courier (Aramex), bypassing the slow and wildly unreliable South African Postal Service (SAPO).

 

 

 

There we go! Thanks, THP  :party:

Fine post with some great pics which will certainly help me!

 

Thanks, Bud!

Posted by huntsman on 19 April 2018 - 01:31 PM

That looks very interesting, though I note how it evolved over the first 12 pages!

I'll certainly give it a try, though using Dorset Nagas that I have just grown! (Our Summer has just ended...)

 

Many Thanks, OP  :party:
